The way in which an organization is housed tells a lot about the organization, just as clothes say something about the person wearing them. A building is therefore much more than a “functional shelter”. It makes tangible what you stand for as an organization. It stimulates the imagination and inspires action.
The building represents a code that depends on the situation and context. You can compare it with a “dress code”. It is not (only) “dress to impress” but (also) “dress to inspire”.
